UB statement on the arrest of John Kapoor

Release Date: October 26, 2017

BUFFALO, N.Y. -- The university released this statement today in response to media inquiries about alumnus Dr. John Kapoor:

The university is aware of Dr. Kapoor’s arrest.

We became aware of the charges through today’s media reports and therefore it would be premature to comment further or take any action until the university has more information.

The building that is home to UB’s School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences bears the name of Dr. Kapoor and his wife in recognition of their long-time philanthropic support of the school and the university.
